PGID & PUID on a Mac

(Shuntera) #1

Argghh, these permissions are killing me.

In some of the images to create the container you set up environmental variables for PGID and PUID dor user and group IDs.

I set them properly I think using the id command in the terminal to see what they are, but I always run into subsequent issues where the container complains that it cannot write a config or a log file.

I go in and chmod 777 everything in sight and still have the same problems.

Driving me nuts!!!

Is there a difference when the PGID and PUID permissions in the VirtualBox VM get passed over to the host Mac OS?
